This week I’ve noticed lots of A-Mazing holiday activities popping up on pinterest and SLP blogs. I will definitely be setting up my wishlist on TPT for some of these fun Christmas printables! With the holidays getting closer, I thought it’d be so exciting to host my very first linky party! So if you write a speechie blog, this invite… Read More
Election Day Freebie
So, how many of you have to work tomorrow on Election Day? Our parish actually has the day off! However, several of the surrounding parishes still have school in session.

Happy Halloween, Biscuit
Some of my favorite books to use with my preschoolers are the Biscuit books! Don’t you just love them? They are so sweet and cute. But they are also pretty great for vocabulary.

It seems like I’m always pulled here and there and everywhere to answer parents’ questions, translate… Read More

Every time I hand it over to the students to play, I’m thinking “that’s… Read More
Figurative Language Freebies!
So in our parish, we do full inclusion. That means I see all my language kids in the regular classroom, usually in ELA. NO language pull-out groups! As therapists we really have to think outside the box to come up with activities and lessons that will address their language goals in the regular classroom setting. Last week, my 4th grade language kids were working… Read More
